Doubly penalised for good ground victories at Fontwell (2m1½f) and Kelso (2m), making all to win unchallenged (4/6f) at the Borders venue three weeks ago; twice placed on soft/heavy during his Irish bumper days.
Cost €75,000 as a 3yo; returned from a lengthy absence with a fair hurdles debut at Ayr (2m, soft) in February; disappointing when upped to 2m4f on his next start (2/1f), and does need to brush up his jumping, albeit remains an obvious contender.
Poor Flat maiden (43-rated); distant last of three on hurdles debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, good) last month; holds no conceivable chance.
Flemensfirth gelding; makes his rules/stable debut after competing in Irish PTP's; 2L winner of a Ballysteen maiden (3m, yielding) in April; dam was an unraced sister to the classy chaser Nick Dundee; consult the market.
Soft ground 61-rated 1m2f Flat winner (Yarmouth) for previous trainer Julia Fielden; out of sorts for a while and having joined this trainer recently for £4,000 has a third attempt over hurdles (moderate previously).
Home bred out of the 2m-2m5f chase winner Posh Stick; half-brother to the PTP winner Ripstick; never competitive on hurdles debut here (2m4f, good) last month, and it's highly unlikely that dropping back in trip will coax improvement.
Unraced Tikkanen gelding out of a 2m4f-2m6f hurdles winner (Bonnie Rock); starts off at a realistic level, although equally can hardly be expected to trouble the market principals.
1m2f Haydock Flat winner for Peter Chapple-Hyam in May 2018; joined current connections for 32,000gns in October 2018; masses to find with Some Day Soon on Kelso form; wears a newly applied hood (can race keenly).
Half-sister to the winning chasers Miss Conway (2m-2m3f) and Miss Amelia (2m1f), so if she is to have a positive future as a racehorse, it'll be with time over fences; no chance in this contest.
Youmzain mare from an unraced dam; 50/1 when jumping poorly throughout and pulled up on debut at Perth last Sunday; couldn't be entertained judged solely on that display.
